One For The Roses

"One For The Roses": "Taking time to smell the roses is no longer as easy as it once used to be. Science assumes it knows how to play with fire, with genetics, to create drought and pest resistant plants, but I wonder what other undetermined changes are also happening. I grieve for roses whose oh so lovely fragrance got lost, sacrificed for a magnificently blossoming sight now resistant to blight. Perhaps evolution is really best left with the birds and all those bees..." My Zenworks express my love of pen and ink and a desire to meld symbolism and my poetry with abstract imagery created through spontaneous strokes and repetitive patterns. Zenworks emerge via a tranquil, meditative process that frees me to explore and experiment with line, shape and colour.Pen and Ink on acid-free paper. Original 5"x7" artwork matted to fit an 8"x10" frame.

Price for this original Pen & Ink: $135 (with mat only), $155 (with mat and frame), plus taxes and shipping.
